ELECTION 2021: Third round of primary results, with one notable change

checkbox.jpgThe third round of results from the August 3rd primary is now out. Of the five races and one ballot measure that comprised West Seattle ballots, there’s only one major change: Incumbent city attorney Pete Holmes is now in third place with 32%, behind Ann Davison at 34.5% and Nicole Thomas-Kennedy at 33.1%. The count represents 27 percent of all Seattle ballots sent out; that’s just under two-thirds of all Seattle ballots received so far. Next update, tomorrow afternoon.

    I’m really hoping Thomas-Kennedy win’s. She’s close enough to the edge that as she slips over and grabs the tablecloth she’ll take a bunch more city council members with her!

    Am I the only one who is surprised how long it takes to count primary ballots? Do they just staff them less then a November election because the results aren’t considered as important?

      Actually the primary count is SHORTER – 2 weeks to certification, while general is 3 weeks to certification.

        I figured out my confusion. The percentages of votes counted I see on the results are the percentage of votes received from registered voters. It’s not the percent counted of those received.

      If people put their ballots in the mail on Election Day, or even in a Dropbox, it’s perfectly reasonable to expect that they wouldn’t be counted until Thursday or Friday at the earliest. I dropped mine off Tuesday morning, and there were six other people in the Junction at the same time doing the same thing.

    Buh-bye, Pete!
